A Sweet Treat

Our dear Cielo ,who lives in that sweet house among the roses, is hosting a dessert carnival today! I was not able to get mine sent to her in time so will post it here. I hope you enjoy it but please! Run, do not tarry, over to see Cielo! Her blog is a feast for the eyes every day but today, well, today it is also a feast for your taste buds!
~Lemon Blueberry Cheesecake~

2-½ lbs cream cheese 1 cup sugar 6 tbsp ap flour 2 tsp lemon zest 1 tsp vanilla extract ½ cup lemon juice 1 cup blueberries 4 each eggs 3 each egg yolks

  • Cream the cheese and sugar on low speed of stand mixer (speed 2 on kitchen-aid) until very pliable. Scrape down sides and bottom of bowl with rubber spatula.
  • Add flour in two parts, mixing well after each addition.
  • Add egg and yolks one at a time mixing well after each one. When 4 eggs have been added, stop the mixer and scrape down the side and bottom with spatula. Turn back on to low speed incorporating the rest of the eggs. Blend until last egg has just been incorporated and stop. Add the vanilla, zest, lemon juice and ½ of the blueberries and blend for just 2 minutes. Pour into prepared crust. Sprinkle the remaining blueberries on top of the pie.
  • Bake in oven with water bath at 425 F for 20 minutes. Then turn temp down to 350 F and continue to bake for 50-60 minutes longer until set. (Little to no jiggle in center of pie)


2 cups graham crumbs 4 oz butter melted pinch salt 1 oz ladle of sugar 10-inch spring-form pan

  • Mix together, press into spring-form pan and bake at 400 F for about 15 min until just starting to get color. Remove and cool before adding pie mixture.

This recipe comes from The Inn at Cedar Falls in Logan, Ohio. A lovely spot surrounded by the natural beauty of the Hocking Hills. Bill and I adore Bed and Breakfast Inns and this one is a delight. Their restaurant is renowned for their top notch cuisine set in an authentic antique log cabin. It is a wonderful experience!

Thank you Cielo for hosting such a sweet event!

Love and Hugs,

Susie Q

Oh, I love blue berry cheese cake. My mom used to make it for her Bridge Club when I was little and we would hope there was some left over for us in the morning.

Alice said...

You know how they say not to grocery shop on an empty stomach...I'm thinking I shouldn't read blogs on an empty stomach! Your blueberry cheesecake looks delicious. I'd love a piece this very minute.

Lisa said...

Oh, no!!!! Looks like something I like to eat!!! This was a very fun idea, I wish I was a creative as Cielo. I even love the name, Cielo. I'm having my mother-in-law and mom over for their birthday/mother's day in a couple weeks, your recipe may do the trip. I love blueberry (I miss my grandpa's freshly picked) and just starting on lemon. This sounds like a great combination, plus you can't go wrong with cheesecake!!!

Thanks for the kind words. I bet that cheesecake would help =)

Andi said...

Do you know I've never attempted to make a real cheesecake....the kind you bake. I've put together some of those "boxed" instant things they call cheesecakes but never a "real" one. This I just might try. It really looks yummy Sue.

PEA said...

If I come over right now will you have some ready for me???? hehe Oh Sue, that sure looks delish. I love cheesecake but my family doesn't care for it so it's not something I bake...the only time I get to have some is if I'm at a restaurant or visiting someone who's made one! I feel sooooo deprived. lol xoxo

Cheryl Wray said...
